Every year Sephora comes out with an impressive Holiday Collection and this year is no different. The theme of the sephora collection is pink, featuring an adorable fox which makes the products certainly insta-worthy gifts for friends and family! I test drove the following products to better help you select from the collection to gift or to treat yourself, why not?! (I’m a big fan of ‘me-to-me’ gifts):
1-Sephora Collection Wonderful Eye and Face Palette ($23): This one is for the all-in-one palettes lovers such as myself! It comes with 9 eyeshadows, 2 blushes and a highlighter. All the colors are neutrals so they go with everything & they are nicely pigmented. There is a good balance of matte & shimmery shadows, so you can easily create day to night looks: light matte makeup during the day and a smokey eye at night. I used this palette to create a full look: eyeshadow, eyeliner with the black shadow, the blushes & the highlighter (just add foundation)! The packaging is not only super cute, but it’s also so convenient. The palette is very thin and slick, so it fits in every handbag. Makes it easy to re-touch the makeup at the end of the workday or to take it with you while you travel. Absolutely perfect, I’m completely smitten.
2-Sephora collection Winter Flush Blush Palette ($20): 4 blushes in a mix of matte and shimmery shades that I love. Whether you like the bronzed look or a little flushed, the palette is perfect. It comes in an adorable shimmery gold packaging which is easy to transport and to re-apply. Perfect for travelling as well. The blushes are nicely pigmented and stay put all day. This is a great gift to offer as a stocking stuffer or together with an eyeshadow palette.
3-Sephora Collection La Piñata ($38): How adorable is this?! This little pink fox head is actually a piñata. When you pull on the string, 10 beauty gifts fall out – women’s version of what a piñata should contain ;) The items include: a mascara, a red lip gloss, beauty masks, a polish block, a hair elastic, a liquid liner & a shower gel sample. I don’t know anyone who would not like to receive this gifts, it’s absolutely beautiful & intriguing. Love love love!!!
